Democratic Party Chairman Tom Perez deflected a question about his party’s extreme pro-abortion views Sunday by claiming President Donald Trump does not care about the most vulnerable people in society.
Perez and his party support abortion without restrictions up to birth and taxpayer-funded abortions. Recently, he made comments suggesting pro-life Democrats are not welcome in the party anymore.
Asked about his abortion views Sunday in an interview with Axios, Perez did not defend his radical position. Instead, he blamed Trump and conservative Christians for supposedly hurting “the least of us,” a reference to Matthew 25, according to the Washington Examiner.
“I think the challenge that I see among a lot of people that go to Donald Trump rallies, and then they will go to church on Sunday, and I’m not, I don’t know what faith they are worshiping,” Perez told Axios. “Donald Trump has done more to hurt the least of us among us than just about any president I can think of.”
He quoted Matthew 25 where Jesus challenges his followers to help people in need.
“When you were hungry, I fed you. When you were naked, I provided you with clothing. When you were an immigrant, I welcomed you,” Perez said. “I think one of the reasons why so many people are moving away from Donald Trump is that he’s abandoned all of those values.”
Perez attacked the president because he has no good defense for his own radical pro-abortion position. Rather than caring for “the least of these,” as Jesus called his followers to do, Democrat leaders are pushing to expand the killing of unborn babies through taxpayer-funded abortions, funding to the nation’s largest abortion chain Planned Parenthood, plans to codify Roe v. Wade into federal law, and more.
Every year, nearly 1 million unborn babies are killed in abortions in America. More than one third are aborted at the hands of Planned Parenthood abortionists.
The Trump administration has been working hard to protect unborn babies by cutting off funding to Planned Parenthood and redirecting those funds to actual health clinics that help women and babies.
The president also promised to sign a law to ban late-term abortions on pain-capable unborn babies. He has appointed conservative judges to the courts and pro-life leaders to his administration. He also has been working to expand religious freedom and conscience protections for pro-lifers who think it is wrong to kill an unborn child. In court, his administration is fighting to defend states’ efforts to protect unborn babies from abortion as well.
That is what caring for the “least of these” means. Unborn babies are unique, living human beings from the moment of conception. And today, none are more vulnerable to discrimination and unnecessary death than they.
